I need to change my thermostat


Pretty simple to do, make sure the engine is cold. Drain half of the coolant from the radiator, no need to let it all go, unless it is all due to be replaced. The thermostat is located under the thermostat housing which can be found at the engine end of the outlet water hose(top hose). The housing will only be held in by 2 bolts. Remove the air cleaner housing to get easy access. Take out 2 bolts, pop of thermostat housing and you will see the thermostat, pull it out.

You can see if it is faulty simply by dropping it into a container of boiled water. If the thermostat is closed at cold it should open when in the boiled water and close when removed and cool. If it is open when cold, don't bother to test it, toss it over your shoulder in the bin straight away.

Clean up any old gasket and discard.Put new thermostat in if needed, use a new gasket or gasket goo to form a new gasket. Return housing, bolt down to torque spec. Replace air cleaner , top hose and add coolant. Too easy, wont take hardly any time at all.

Can anyone tell me where thermostate is on 1988 f150 straight 6


Just follow the upper radiator hose to the housing that it is connected to. Remove the radiator hose, and then the housing itself. The thermostat is under the housing. be sure to remove all the old gasket and install a new one when you put it back together.

Jeep Patriot filters change


put a pan below the drain plug drain it open the top first. then take off the oil filter make sure you have old rags can get a little messy i believe that the filter is on the passenger side of the car near the wheel well. put the new filter on put a little bit of oil on the rubber thing on the new filter so it doesn't get stuck. put the plug back in make sure you wernt using synthetic before you should switch back to regular oil after using syntetic or at least thats what im told. put the plug back in on the oil pan. put the oil in the top it should be labled OIL. and make sure you use enough oil. I would also change my air filter too.

at advanced auto stores they will tell you what oil to use and how much by looking at one of the books that they have near the oil they will also tell you the filter size. recycle your old oil when your done.

It is usualy easier to just go to a shop but i love working on my jeep so i do it my self will probly cut down time too but price should be a little cheaper but not much.
good luck
shouldn't need it tho its really easy

Im going to replace the front crank seal( timing cover seal) this weekend), is it as easy as pulling the pully off the bottom, taking the old seal out with a screw driver or something, and tapping the new...


Provided that you are able to access it, then yes, there's no reason at all why you shouldn't be able to manage it quite simply. As you're probably aware, you need to be careful as you remove the old seal to make sure you don't damage the casing, and similarly when you replace the new one! Good luck!

How do you replace the thermostat? Is it better to take it to a mechanic?


The thermostat is normally located in the aluminium elbow that the top radiator hose connects to. The elbow is usually held down by two bolts and it is only necessary to remove these to replace the thermostat. It may not be necessary to remove any hoses. Take care that the new thermostat is correctly located in its recess and the old gasketing has been completely removed and that the new gasket has a smear of gasket cement on it. While tightening the bolts, make sure that the elbow is seating evenly and not catching on the edge of the thermostat or you could crack the elbow.

I am trying to change the thermostat in my 1989 nissan maxima. im not sure if i put it in the top or bottom hose. please help. i need to find a diagram but am having trouble locating one.


Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine block. There should be a roundish metal housing at the end of it. Put a bowl underneath to catch any fluid and take off the bolts(try a 10mm socket or wrench) that hold the thermostat housing to the head. Then just pull out the thermostat and scrape off the old gasket. Put the new thermostat on spring-side toward engine, just like the old one. Make sure to use a new gasket! Then push the housing back over it and tighten the bolts. Add any anti-freeze necessary and your done!

Where is the thermostat on a 2005 impala 3.4 and how do I replace?


Your thermostat is located inside the thermostat housing at the end of the upper radiator hose, on the back of the engine. Just find your upper radiator hose and follow it to the engine. It's hooked to the thermostat housing. easy... now comes the fun... To replace your thermostat, you have to remove the air intake duct (which mean unplug all your sensors on it, MAF etc). That should give you better access to the housing. You still have the throttle body right above the housing, and you may have to remove it too for better access and that sucks...(it involves disconnecting some coolant bypass lines...make sure you drain your radiator before you do so) Once you have that done remove the thermostat housing (after you unplug the coolant temperature sensor) and have some towels and a bucket ready as coolant will be coming out of it. Remove the old thermostat, remove the old gasket if necessary, and put the new thermostat with the new gasket in there (with the spring pointing toward the engine). Put some RTV sealant on the housing bolt it back on there, and put the throttle body back as well as the air duct and all the sensors. Refill your radiator, turn your engine on and check for leaks.

It is ann 05 gm 4.3 liter where is it located sorry where is the thermostat located


Find where your top radiator hose connects to the engine. The cover that the hose clamps to is the cover for the thermostat. It should be on the front of the engine, right on top. There will be two bolts holding it on, and the thermostat is underneath. It will lift out once the cover is off. Replacing is easy, just put the new one in exactly like the old one came out. It IS possible to get it in upside down, so make sure the new one goes in like the old one. The new thermostat should come with a new gasket, so you should be all set to put it back together. Once that's done, just make sure you check for leaks every now and then for a couple of weeks.

The thermostat in 2000 audi A6 is bad. How to fix ?


Hi,
The thermostat is located in a housing, mounted on your engine with the top radiator hose attached. It is relatively easy to replace.
Be sure to put the new thermostat in the correct direction (notice direction of old one before taking it out). Also, be sure to clean the old gasket from the housing and be careful not to break the housing... many are cast aluminum and overtightening a bolt can easily create a headache. :o)
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Need to change my thermostat on my 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4WD


I do not know a link to a diagram, but I can certainly tell you how to find the thermostat! Looking at the front of the engine, there is a large water hose at the top of the motor that goes to the left, and attaches to the radiator. Not the radiator end, but the other end attaches to the thermostat cover. It has 2 bolts to take out and the little thing between that, and the motor about 2" around that kind of looks like a spinning top, is the thermostat. It is easy to change. Make sure you get ALL the old gasket off and that both bolts go through the new one, and you should be in business!
